I all! I hope I'm posting this in the right place, it's been aaaaaaaages since I posted in a forum...

Recently got myself an atari STe because I've been dying to code on something ancient for years. I grew up with an ST, but I didn't have the software / knowhow to program it, nor even friends who knew what it wa, let alone anyone who I had dev disks I could copy. Before my original ST, I had an Amstrad CPC which I had a lot of fun programming basic on.

These days I do C++ game dev, but I pined to turn back the clock and work on the machine I grew up on.

I've upgraded to 4MB RAM, have my Devpac 3 disk sorted & my ultrasatan is on it's way. But where do I even get started on 68000 assembly programming? I've started reading some books online, but being dyslexic, I really wanna just crack on with some well explained tutorials with code examples...

Also, hello! I'm so glad to see the Atari ST community is alive and well!

Hello from norway :-)

I started with atari when I went at the vocational school in 1982 where I buy my first atari 2600 game machine. Later in the summer of 1984 I shopped my first commodore 64. Still have it standing in a closet and works well after 33 years. In August 1990 I bought my first Atari ste worked fine for many years. Offered in 2004 to buy 2 pieces atari ste from seller in Norway that has been used in a school.

Inserted Analogic STE TOS Switcher in the one I bought and had to throw motherboard in the trashcan as rom sockets was to wide after analogue STE TOS Switcher which some years later became defective. Purchased new disk drive from best electronics in 2005 when it who stood in my first atari ste was worn out. Also bought from best electronics analogue STE TOS Switcher which some years later became defective, got 4 bombs during startup computer.

In 2009 I bought 2 pieces ultrasatan and later in 2010 an additional atari ste from atarifreakz with dma circuit C398739-001. I use most atari to play games and other things. Also i have deluxe paint that I have used some time and 3D construction kit and other graphics programs.

Hello from Paris,

The 1040 STe was my first computer as a Xmas present. Years later I could get the GFA Basic 3.5E with compiler (again as Xmas present or reward for a good scholar year...).

I even wrote a modest memory game as a shareware : Let's Go Memo (googling a little, here is a metadata land page http://www.mobygames.com/game/atari-st/lets-go-memo and someone even captured a video of the gameplay https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23NtAuo5ABs )

Fast forward 2009, I felt a little bit nostalgic, and wanted a good looking TrueType font that would look like an Atari ST font (the 8×16 version) at the right size, and created the "Sporniket Nostalgie Sans typeface v9.08" with a Bold variable width and Bold Monospaced variant (go here : http://www.sporniket-studio.com/page/200908022220 ). The weak point of this font is that you must set the size at 25 point, because I wanted to support diacritics without deformed letters, including uppercase diacritics. The kerning may need some improvements. And there is no regular nor italic variant. Anyway the monospaced variant is nice for your terminal :)

Fast forward 2018, I feel nostalgic again, and just started learning assembly language, for the sake of writing a little game. Using an emulator is my only mean of testing my code, as I have to let go of my gear around 2013.

Best regards.
